Tardigrada/Widrstand/Fallen Empire Records/2012 Demo Review


  Tardigrada  are  a  band  from  Switzerland  that  plays  a  very  atmospheric  form  of  black  metal  and  this  is  a  review  of  their  2012  demo  "Widrstand"  which  was  released  by  Fallen  Empire  Records.

  Drums  range  from  slow  to  mid  paced  playing  with  some  fast  drumming  and  blast  beats  being  present on  this  recording,  while  the  synths  bring  a  very  dark  and  atmospheric  sound  to  the  recording  along  with  some  violins,  as  for  the  bass  playing  it  has  a  very  dark  tone  with  riffs  that  follow  the  riffing  that  are  coming  out  of  the  guitars.

  Rhythm  guitars  range  from  slow,  mid  paced  to  fast  atmospheric  black  metal  riffs  that  use  some  raw  and  primitive  sounding  elements  as  well  as  a  great  amount  of  melody  as  well  as  a  brief  use  of  soft  and  clean  playing,  while  the  lead  guitars  are  very  melodic  sounding  black  metal  guitar  leads,  as  for  the  acoustic  guitars  when  they  are  utilized  they  use  finger   picking  and  full  chords  to  enhance  the  dark  atmosphere  of  the  recording.

  Vocals  are  mostly  grim  sounding  and  high  pitched  black  metal  screams  with  some  spoken  word  parts,  while  the  lyrics  are  written  in their  native  tongue  and  cover  dark  themes,  as  for  the  production  it  has  a very  dark,  raw  and  primitive  sound  to  it  with  the  songs  being  long  and  epic  in  length.

  In  my  opinion  Tardigrada  are  a  very  great  sounding  atmospheric  black  metal  band  and  if  you  are a  fan  of  this  musical  genre,  you  should  check  out  this  recording.  RECOMMENDED  TRACKS  INCLUDE  "Hoffnungslos"  and  "Einsamkeit".  RECOMMENDED  BUY.
